Death Vessel - Nothing Is Precious Enough for Us (2008)

Folk band headed by singer-songwriter Joel Thibodeau. You may be surprised to learn that the singing on this album is performed by Joel, as it is in an unusually high register for a male. Regardless, it really works with the music. It is interesting modern folk music, with fantastic acoustic guitar playing and very tasteful additions of other instruments scattered thoughout. The electric guitar solos, when they appear, are almost Marc Ribot-ish, which adds an interesting flavour to the songs.
